Fleets under his purview have regularly been the among the most successful and active in the Empire.
Admiral Jibril spoke at length about the appointment and the Ammatar Mandate. "It fills me with great pride to be placed in such a position of importance. The Mandate is a vital part of the Empire's future and the Ammatar people deserve to live safe, peaceful lives. The Fleet has a long tradition of combating the Empire's enemies and standing strong against the aggression of the Minmatar. I hope to continue this tradition and add to it."
In addition to the Admiral's reassignment, the segment of the Ardishapur fleet under his command has been reassigned to the Mandate. "The forces of the Ardishapur Family shall be integrated into the existing Mandate Fleet structure," the Admiral explained.

With the Ammatar Fleet bolstered by these new additions, I believe we can bring a new era of stability and safety to all Mandate space."
